FREE Coffee All Over NYC Through February

Oh my God, you guys. Did you hear about this? This is kinda major. Like, new-Rococop-movie level major. When I budget out my life I can always count on a few common red lines. Biggest one is booze, naturally, but a perpetual deficit is my love of coffee. Now, thanks

Hot Pants and Lace-Ups at Down and Derby

I get the whole hipster embraced sports of the past thing: bowling, kickball, and of course roller-skating. Hell, I’m just waiting for shuffleboard to get its turn as activity of the moment.

Cheap Jazz: Hot Five at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola

I mostly go to the Time Warner Center because it’s fancy. Not fancy in a “Oh gawd I wish I knew how to match my clothes” but more fancy than most public spaces in NYC in that it’s extremely clean, there are often free hors d’oeuvres thanks to samples at

The Pony Bar: Midtown’s Beer Hero
